the danger of Islamaphobia
Condemning this Community Center ( a peaceful community center) in lower Manhattan is playing right into the hands of the Extremists who predicted this would happen in the US.
The Extremists WANT this Islamaphopia to play on and on… Can’t people understand that Terrorists attacked on 9/11, not Muslims???
The Muslim religion is peaceful, loving and as honorable as our religions.
Why can’t people see that fighting against the Muslims is EXACTLY what the extremists want??? Please understand that this vociferous hate mongering is a recruiting tool for the likes of Bin Laden and other groups of that ilk!
It is totally baffling to me why we must be so prejudiced, intolerant and ignorant. Muslims did not attack on 9/11, Terrorists did!!
What religion was McVeigh when he attacked the government building in Oklahoma? What does it matter? If McVeigh were Baptist or Catholic, then we should hate those groups too, right?
Listen to this calm voice of reason from Ron Paul:
“The outcry over the building of the mosque, near ground zero, implies that Islam alone was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. According to those who are condemning the building of the mosque, the nineteen suicide terrorists on 9/11 spoke for all Muslims. This is like blaming all Christians for …the wars of aggression and occupation because some Christians supported the neo-conservatives’ aggressive wars.
The House Speaker is now treading on a slippery slope by demanding a Congressional investigation to find out just who is funding the mosque—a bold rejection of property rights, 1st Amendment rights, and the Rule of Law—in order to look tough against Islam.
This is all about hate and Islamaphobia.
We now have an epidemic of “sunshine patriots” on both the right and the left who are all for freedom, as long as there’s no controversy and nobody is offended. Political demagoguery rules when truth and liberty are ignored.”
I truly thought we were governed by laws in this country. When did we become so lawless?
We must wake up and come to our senses.
What happened to “the land of the free and the brave?”
The free and the brave?
Not so much.
